A little about me and my glass journey

My lampwork artisan glass items are handmade by myself, Darrelle in my cosy little studio in South Devon, UK. I am a self-representing artist, which means each item is made individually and shaped by hand and not mass-produced using moulds. I take great pride in my glass art as well as the quality of my work ensuring you receive the best items. Each glass piece is annealed in a kiln for long lasting durability and carefully inspected for any flaws.  

I have been designing and creating glass art for the past 7 years. I first got to experience glass blowing at Plymouth Art College. While studying there I came across lampworking torches and discovered my passion for small scale glass. After 3 years at college studying lampwork, general glass-making and silver-smithing I went on to pursue my passion independently. 

I now have my own workshop at home where I can design and make all my own work. Each and every piece is individually designed and handcrafted here by me. The creative process of my art is as important to me as the end result. I take great pride in my glass art as well as the quality of my work. 

Due to the nature of hand-crafted items, each and every piece is individual but always given the same care and attention to make every piece special. 

You will find my love for the natural world and the beautiful Devon countryside and seaside continues to provide an inspiration for my work. When I'm not in my workshop I'm normally out walking with my dog Ted.  As I live near so many beautiful places in and around Devon, I take full advantage of this. It’s never long until I’m inspired to making something new, so keep checking back to see my latest designs or follow me on Instagram & Facebook @ellesglass.

Thank you so much for taking the time to get to know a little about me and viewing my glass art. Please reach out to me if you have any questions at all. I’m always excited to discuss a customer’s customized request so feel free to contact me to place a special request.
